The tire division of automotive supplier Continental AG, Hannover/Germany, and the producer of industrial yarn and cord fabric, Kordsa Global A.S., Istanbul/Turkey, are working together on a new, sustainable adhesion system standard for bonding textile reinforcing materials to rubber-based compounds.

In the context of their collaboration in the development sector, the 2 companies have agreed to develop a technology in which the substances resorcinol and formaldehyde are replaced by more eco-friendly chemicals.

Continental and Kordsa are planning to introduce a free licensing concept for the new adhesion system. Further details will be presented from February 21-22, 2018 at Tire Expo 2018 in Hanover/Germany.
